6 So Isaac 1lived in Gerar.
7 When the men of the place asked about his wife, he said, “aShe is my sister,” for he was bafraid to say, “my wife,” thinking, “1the men of the place might kill me on account of Rebekah, for she is cbeautiful.”
10 aAbimelech said, “What is this you have done to us? One of the people might easily have lain with your wife, and you would have brought guilt upon us.”
11 So Abimelech charged all the people, saying, “He who atouches this man or his wife shall surely be put to death.”
17 And Isaac departed from there and camped in the valley of Gerar, and 1settled there.
18 Then Isaac dug again the wells of water which 1had been dug in the days of his father Abraham, for the Philistines had stopped them up after the death of Abraham; and he 2gave them the same names which his father had 3given them.
19 But when Isaac’s servants dug in the valley and found there a well of 1flowing water,
21 Then they dug another well, and they quarreled over it too, so he named it 1Sitnah.
22 He moved away from there and dug another well, and they did not quarrel over it; so he named it 1Rehoboth, for he said, “2aAt last the Lord has made 3room for us, and we will be bfruitful in the land.”
23 Then he went up from there to aBeersheba.
24 The Lord aappeared to him the same night and said,
“bI am the God of your father Abraham;
cDo not fear, for I am with you.
For the sake of My servant Abraham.”
25 So he built an aaltar there and called upon the name of the Lord, and pitched his tent there; and there Isaac’s servants dug a well.
27 Isaac said to them, “aWhy have you come to me, since you hate me and have sent me away from you?”
30 Then ahe made them a feast, and they ate and drank.
33 So he called it Shibah; therefore the name of the city is aBeersheba to this day.
